GRANITE FALLS, Minn. - The vernacular used by investigators changed Wednesday, but the bottom line for investigators is still the same:
They desperately need to find the suspected gunman in last week's Granite Falls double murder.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Andrew Dikken, now officially being called "a suspect" in the fatal shootings of 26-year-old Kara Monson and her 28-year-old boyfriend, Chris Panitzke.
He previously had been referred to by authorities as "a person of interest."
Dikken has been missing since the two were shot September 2 at Monson's home. Authorities say Dikken's vehicle was found two days later just north of Belview. He and Monson were previously in a long term relationship.
Meanwhile, about 600 people gathered at Granite Falls Lutheran Church Tuesday for Monson's funeral. Friends and family members described Monson as a loving mother and someone who always saw the best in others. The West Central Tribune says Monson's brother-in-law, Tim Sheely, encouraged mourners to "love one another as Kara would."
